Day 359a I got brownie points!!
Unlikely, but true! Monday, on our way home from Syracuse, I had the foresight to stop at the grocery store and pick up an arrangement of 12 red roses with one white rose in the center and baby’s breath scattered around. All in a nice glass vase.
Got home, presented the vase & flowers to C and uttered “Happy Anniversary!!”. Guess who completely forgot? FIL doesn’t count. He’d forget anyhow. This summer has been so totally screwy, C completely forgot our - you ready for this – 24th anniversary. She’ll be making that up to me somehow, I’m sure. But at least I didn’t get an “aw, shit” on my record.
Better yet, after out 12 year old BBQ grill refused to operate last night, FIL has offered to buy us a replacement grill. That’ll be our anniversary present. Considering how much we cook outdoors, even in winter, it’s a great gift. Now if we can just get him to remember it . . .
Still 359 days down. I think my simulations are starting to work finally . .
